If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn't. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn't be. And what it wouldn't be, it would. You see?

I was Velma from Scooby-doo for Halloween. The ward had a huge party and it was a lot of fun.

We started off the night with dinner and everyone in downtown PA loved it. They acted as if they've never experience Halloween before.

My friend Paul was Joseph Smith and looked just he part.

Dancin' at the party.

Derek was a salamander and acted like one all night skirming around.

Emily Cox, one of the hostess' of the fabulous party.

Casey was "The Fog." However, he looked more like a cloud or a sheep.

Brad was a monk. He tried to get me to confess my sins, but was unsuccessful.

Kimball was Morpheous from "The Matrix"


Jonathan loves PJ's. So I thought I would get him a costume that involves pajamas. I found this superman costume and he quickly caught onto trick-or-treating. He's such a cutie-pie. He also have a lot of fun tackling me. He'll start going "tackle Ala" and make me pretend I am sleeping and then jump on me.

Fun with a paper bag

Yesterday Jonathan and Emma flew in from NYC and Johnny made himself at home having fun hiding inside a paper bag. He was full of giggles and smiles.

This is the "lost and found" at our school. I know, it's loaded with stuff. Our principal thought that he should wash the clothes, so he sprayed them with a hose and hung them out to dry. It reminds me of a trailer park or something.


One of my students was balancing a ruler on is nose. I told him that he should go bigger, so he tried a stool.

The cutest little guy

I went to New York this weekend to visit my nephew for his birthday. He is the cutest little guy. We had a lot of fun. I loved it when he would yell for me in the morning to get him out of his crib, "Ala, Ala, Aaaaaaaaaaaaaala." We went to the Natural History Museum and FAO Swartz.

Thomas then tank engine

Johnny had a lot of fun with his new "Diesel" engine that I got him for his birthday and also his new tunnel which he got a kick out of. Emma and I made him a Thomas the Train birthday cake. (Like the generic smiley face?)

Columbus Day

Apparently the Columbus Day is a big holiday for the Italians. I was asking an Italian co-worker. We got caught in the middle of the parade on 5th Ave. ---Notice the Hummer-like Fire Engine.

Doug (another teacher at school) thought it would be funny to create a holder out of tape for my water bottle in the faculty room.

Public School Locker

For one of my Art classes the students had to make 3-D forms and Scott wanted to make a "public school" locker, hence the graffiti.

Emily came over to visit yesterday. It was nice to chat with her and hang out.

Friday night several of us went to the drive-in to see "Roll Bounce." It was fun.

Album Cover

If we all were ever in a band together, this would be a cool album cover.

oh no....

A distraught and tired Casey at 2am.

Ending the night with Twister

This was a real twister game. Our extremities were twisted and tangled up with each others.
